I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Oh my, I do not even know were to begin. I has all kinds of emotions going on here so lets see it started off where I was crying within the first few chapters, then I cried a little more, which turned in to my blood boiling and had the need for revenge, but I have to say there was feel goods here too the love and understanding was amazing. I love all of these shifters Raid has my heart once again, Conal well let’s just say he is not so high on my list this time. So, Let’s talk about Lore for a second yep he just made my heart beat overtime for him. I truly think I have found my favorite.

Raid loves Theo and knows she is his true mate, but he made an agreement long before Theo came into his life. He is so dedicated to the Novus Pack and an honorable man that he would never go back on his word.  When the time came to honor the agreement, Theo knew she could not stay it would be the death of her. She asked to be sold to another pack and although Raid didn’t want to, he let her go.

Theo finally found a place that she loved, people that she loved and felt the same in return and now her world began to fall apart. She lost the one she loved and went to the new pack. From the moment she arrived she knew things would be different and she would be in trouble.

When things went from bad to worse for Theo. When Raid found out how bad things were for Theo there was no stopping him from helping her. The love of a family surrounded her loved her, but it just wasn’t enough. Theo was changed forever, and it was unknown if she would ever make her way back.

Raid was amazing in this one he was an Alpha first and foremost but the compassion, patients and tenderness he showed Theo brought tears to my eyes.  The love that was shown to Theo from everyone in the pack was incredible. My heart broke for everything Theo went through and overcame. She is a very strong survivor. What a gut-wrenching story. It hurt so much to see Raid and Theo give up the one thing that meant the most to them for the betterment of the family.

I’m going to switch gears and yes talk about Lore again.  I loved that we see a lot of him in this book and let me tell you I am so intrigued by him I need to know more; I need to know his story.  I am a sucker for the dark mysterious ones and there is something dark about Lore.  I cannot wait to see what is in store for us next but what ever it is I know it will be one turbulent ride.

M. Jayne doesn’t know what she wants to be when and if she ever grows up. She’s worked retail, recorded hearings in a Federal Courtroom, worked behind the scenes with security at a casino and currently she is living her dream writing Romance. She plots and plans from her farm in central Indiana that she shares with her husband and two mastiffs, Ginger and Duncan Keith.

When she isn’t creating she can be found watching sports, searching for the perfect mascara and reading. She also loves questionable TV- Any Real Housewives, The Steve Wilkos Show and Live PD. Plus she is addicted to the TMZ app on her phone. M. Jayne loves to meet readers. She attends many conferences and signings. Please take a moment and introduce yourself and tell her what you are reading.

#WOTR19 #Erotica #Novella – Wild (Quick & Dirty Series #3) by Kate Roth

43680362

She’s housesitting at her aunt and uncle’s mini mansion. He’s the rich, brooding silverfox next door. She tempts him, he intrigues her and they both desperately want something wild.

*Each book in the Quick & Dirty series is a novella. They are all stand-alone, insta-loving, panty-melting, swoon-worthy stories to satisfy your craving for something quick and dirty*

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I don’t know what it is about you and your love for Silver Foxes, but DAMN Gavin has been my favorite so far.  This book is a little bit different then the other books.  Maybe it’s because Gavin stole my heart? Maybe its because he is an older man rediscovering life?  Who the hell knows but still…guuurl you write some nasty stuff and this is why I love you!!

This book is a quick and dirty novella about those May-December romances that everyone thinks wont last and yet Gavin and Lydia have so much chemistry.  They both aren’t looking for love or commitment so to literally crash into each other at the time they did, proves love knows best.

Gavin is a man who is happy to drink a beer on the patio with his dog.  Lydia is a wild child who will be jet setting with her band when they meet.  The chemistry and changes the both undergo in the novella are delicious reads.

I loved this one and am so excited for the next installment of the dirty neighbor’s series.

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Avelyn Paige. I am a cancer research scientist by day, and an author by night.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

My favorite place to write is wherever I can find a few second. I have written on my phone during church when a thought hit so no place is safe from writing time. I’m not really a snacker when I write, but there’s always a can of coke nearby.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

The people. I am a social butterfly naturally, but getting to be in a place with so many like-minded individuals is absolutely inspiring and so, so much fun. The event itself always goes by way too fast.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Oh lord have mercy. There’s way too many. Some that would even require a time machine because they aren’t with us anymore. If I had to pick a current favorite, I’d love to pick the brain of Darynda Jones.

What author would you love to write with?

I’d honestly love to write a PNR with Darynda or Chloe Neill.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Again… so many memories. I think my favorite would have to be the first time someone recognized outside of a signing. My husband and I were at our local casino for a night out, and a reader spotted me there. It was such a fun experience, and to meet a reader so close to home was amazing.

#NewRelease, #Review, #Shifter, #TrueMates. Alpha Ascending: True Mates Generations 3 by Alicia Montgomery

Wolf shifter Lucas Anderson only knew one thing: humans were scum and not to be trusted. From the moment he was born, his future was already set: to be Alpha of the most powerful Lycan clan in the world. He would do anything to protect his clan and keep their existence a secret. But when a gorgeous,*human* police detective accuses him of murder, his life is turned upside-down and he can’t ignore her or the passion she stirs up in him and his wolf. 

Detective Sofia Selinofoto’s life revolved around putting scumbags in jail and getting justice for the weak and innocent. However, her razor-sharp focus and ethics are put to the test when her murder investigation leads her to CEO billionaire Lucas Anderson. From the moment she sets her eyes on him, the pull of attraction was so strong she almost forgets that he could be a killer. But, she knows he’s hiding something and solving this particular puzzle both scares and thrills her.

Unable to resist each other, they play a dangerous cat-and-mouse game that only brings them closer together and sparks the flames of their desire. When her life is threatened, he knew he would burn the world down to protect her. But, she was still human and not to be trusted. Can he put his prejudices aside and put his faith in her or will he forever want someone he can never truly have?

Find out by reading this sizzling paranormal romance now!
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


The True Mates Generations Series is back with Lucas’s book.
Lucas Anderson is the next Alpha of New York and CEO of the Fenrir Corporation.  Sophia Selinofoto is a human detective of the NYPD.
Parts of this story coincided with book 2 which is Lucas’s twin sister’s book so you get a little bit of a view of what happened in those scenes from his point of view which is cool.
Lucas is unlike the other alpha’s in that he changed at a young age due to seeing his sister hurt and  because of that the blood lust caused him to shift.  He still has problems sometimes when he sees someone he loves being hurt and his wolf takes over causing a shift that he has no control over and it can make him very dangerous when he goes through a shift like that.
Sophia is called to the Blood Moon night club due to a disturbance and sees him after such a shift.
What happens next is fate putting them into each other’s path by her investigating a murder of a man that has ties to him and she can’t help but look more closely into him.
Lucas doesn’t want anything to do with the human, but his wolf is always calm around her.  When she realizes that he is not who she’s looking for and he realizes that maybe his wolf is right to want her things change.
Montgomery does a great job at showing us how hard it is to still  be a woman in what is still considered to be a man’s field of work and how hard it is to still to the right thing sometimes.  She also does a wonder job at showing us how hard Lucas works to control his wolf when it gets agitated and wants it to shift.
I can not wait to see what happens next after the ending that she wrote to this story either because it was a totally out of nowhere.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Lord.  I finished this book last night and I am still having a hard time trying to figure out how to word my review.  This book is absolutely everything a person who loves paranormal will want and need to read.  The emotional build of this story is so overwhelming I was in tears by 7% of the story and again I was bawling by 30%.  There is so much that happens to Theo and Raider.  SO much happens to the Novus Pack plus all the friends of the couple in this story.  It is impossible to read the story and leave it without being utterly stunned by the genius writing and flow.

I KNEW going in this book would have hard and difficult content.  Melanie kept apologizing to me for what I was about to read.  But the journey the couple takes IS needed for them both to realize they need the other to complete themselves.

Raider is so selfless in worrying for his people first he does the hardest thing he has ever done by letting Theo go.  Theo knows Raider and the Pack will not be ok unless she leaves so she makes the decision to leave for another Pack.  These two make the ultimate sacrifice, putting aside their love and desire for the other for everyone one else so Raider can keep his promise to another Pack.  When that sacrifice ends up costing Theo, she pays the highest price a women can pay, Raider and the pack come to aide THEIR Seer.

The couple deal with A LOT.  They deal with the guilt they both have.  They deal with the inability to express themselves for fear of what the other might be thinking or wanting.  They deal with miscommunication over everything they have been through.

This book is absolutely about love and the price people pay. It’s about commitment and how you don’t turn your back on those you love when times get hard.  It’s about loving people even when they don’t love themselves.  It’s about FAMILY and how even when you fight, you never really turn your back on those you love.

The emotions run deep in this story.  The laughs are hard to come by at times, but the bonds of love and family are throughout the story.   I will say seeing the set up for Lore’s mate……my heart was going pitter patter.  That mass murdering wolf, personal guard and tutor of Theo’s has a special place in my heart.  Also seeing Tex will be having a story later on down the road too made me happy.

I cannot wait for another book in the series.  I cannot wait for more from this pack and the characters.  It makes me so happy to be privileged to get early copies even if life sucks and I have to wait 2 weeks to read it.

#NewRelease, #Review, #BrodyBrothers. Bruised (BrodyBrother book 3) by Stacy Gail

Y

“You’re coming with me.”

When Killian Brody showed up at Dallas Faircloth’s work with news that her half-brother might die without her help, she never expected the oldest and sexiest Brody to freaking kidnap her to seal the deal on her cooperation.

The scandalous affair between Dallas’s mother and Killian’s father made everything inside Dallas revolt at the Brody name. It was because of a Brody her world had been left in ruins at the age of eight, and she’d had to rebuild all on her own. She hated the Brodys. Which was too bad, really. Killian Brody was take-charge, arrogant and so damn sexy she would have climbed that rugged cowboy like a tree if it weren’t for that last name of his.

Her mother had proven the men in the Brody family were as dangerously addictive as any drug, and Dallas didn’t want to get hooked. But when Killian turns his sights on her and makes her believe she’s the one he can’t live without, she has a choice—play it safe, or dive in headfirst and risk falling in love with a Brody man.

85,000 words

***This standalone contemporary romance contains multiple sex scenes. Also contains an Alpha with serious impulse issues, a spicy heroine, a felonious kidnapping that may or may not count, and one teeny little spanking. No cheating, no love triangles, no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed. Due to adult language and sexual content, this book is not intended for people under the age of eighteen*** 

 

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

Welcome back to Bitterhorn Texas and say HELLO hottie to the oldest Brody brother Killian.

Ok, somethings to know about Killian: number 1 he’s a man that always gets what he wants no matter what it is. Number 2; he  has a tendency to act without thinking whether this is by action or saying something, and number 3, the man is a protector which means sometimes he does number two because of this. 

Dallas Faircloth is a woman who hates the Brody name and never thought she would see Bitterhorn again.  Why you ask? Simple, because her mother and Killian’s father had a affair which lead to a child, which lead to the absolute destruction of two families and the lives of 5 children as they knew it.

Oh my, the heat between these two I can feel all the way from Texas to my house in KY!!!!  

The relationship between these two in the beginning is rough to say the least, after all he did “kidnap” her and bring her back to Bitterhorn.  She was coming back on her own but he didn’t know that when he grabbed her.  See here’s the thing, the half brother that they share was hurt and no one was a match but her, so even though she was coming back to help the little brother he didn’t know that so it was technically kidnapping but not really. LOL

When they stop fighting and start talking they see how much they have in common, neither lived the life the other thought they did growing up, and they start having feelings for each other.

Gail has done another awesome job at showing yes alpha men can be for lack of a better word a**holes, but they have feelings too and maybe can turn that part of themselves off for the love of a woman that will stand of to that and show them that they can show their softer side to the world.

The last Brody brother is going to be the baby Des, he’s going to be a doozy and I can’t wait to see the woman who claims him.

#CoverReveal Unchaining You by Vic Tyler



If he hates me for what happened 8 years ago, just imagine how he feels now…

Do I feel bad for accidentally hooking up with the one who broke my heart?

… No.

Should I feel bad for extorting him for a job that I need?

… Probably.

But like I said, I need the job.

Life’s kind to some people.

Exhibit A: Devon Leo

Hot, brooding loner in high school → hot, brooding billionaire tech tycoon who’s an international mans!ut.

Exhibit Me: Skylar Kay

Your everyday average nobody → college dropout, moonlighting stripper nobody who’s drowning in debt.

The least he can do for breaking my heart is give me a job.

Yeah, the one I blackmailed him for.

I just didn’t think the job was for a position under him.

I’ll have to be careful not to get under him. Again.

Because this time, his reputation isn’t just on the line.

My heart is.

Excerpt

Chapter 1

Skylar

A slow, synth beat starts to thump, muted, from the speakers all around the dim room. I was hoping for something a little more upbeat since I’m running on three hours of sleep, and the velvety couches lining the walls of the VIP Room are starting to look like plush black clouds at this point of the night. If I strain my ears, I can hear the enthused and muffled whomp-whomp-whomp in the main room where everyone’s hunting — for money or attention.

The VIP Room is just quiet enough for the patrons sparsely spread throughout the area to converse with the dancers whose time they’re procuring hourly. Of course, some of them aren’t really looking for conversation.

Like Bill.

The pudgy, leering man sitting in front of me looks up hungrily as I lean forward to fill his vision with my heavy breasts. Even though they’re taped down securely, I’m still paranoid that the thin, elastic straps of my black, lacy bikini are going to snap, leaving me with no more than black, lacy pasties with sad, dangly tentacles.

I say ‘bikini,’ but it’s the kind you’d never wear in public unless you want to scandalize parents at the public pool and become a budding teenage boy’s first wet dream. The kind that would never survive a cannonball, and the one that makes your nightmare of seeing your bikini pieces floating up right next to you come true. More like a skinny dip-kini.

“Destiny.”

Bill holds out a few Andrew Jacksons, and I push my hip toward him so he can slip it into the side string of my thong. He takes his time, his dry fingers grazing roughly against my skin, taking advantage of the one opportunity during our time together that I let him touch me. After all, he’s more generous with his tips when I let him brush a feel or two during our hour.

Lowering my voice to a sultry hum, I purr, “Stay for a little longer, Bill.”

He chuckles in that not smooth way — the sound gutturally choked by his bubbling lust.

“Can’t tonight, baby.” He lowers his voice, trying to sound seductive. “Unless you want to come home with me.”

He arches his brow with a cheesy smile as his fingers touch his wallet.

It makes me feel dirty. Very, very dirty. And not in the sexy way.

For eight hours a night, a few nights a week, my sensitive bitties of skin are slapped on with cash like I’m a papier-mache project. I’m basically rolling around in money, and if you mix in a little paste, you can make a cash cast out of me. But let me tell you, the whole ‘rolling in dough’ thing is an idea that’s only appealing to be entertained theoretically.

I mean, money’s pretty gross if you think about it. You never know where it’s been. Stuffed in wallets, forgotten in pockets, hidden in shoes or bras, dropped in gasoline-laden puddles on the street, handled by greasy, pizza-oiled hands, rolled to snort coke, slid into a stripper’s asscrack.

The first time I went home with a huge stack of tips, I did it. I spread out a bed of green and laid down on it. It’s really not that exciting. But go ahead and try. And if you’re more like me than you are Ebenezer Scrooge, you’ll find out that carpeting your floor with money doesn’t make it any softer.

It’s still cold, hard cash. In a cold, hard world.

I fight the urge to scrunch my nose, instead lowering them to watch my manicured fingers walk up his white dress shirt, his suit jacket lying forgotten next to him to minimize the layers between us. “You know I can’t go home with customers.”

Can’t, won’t, don’t want to. What’s the difference? In the end, it’s not going to happen.

Some of my clients are sweethearts. Just lonely ones. But some men, like Bill, wave around their money using the carrot-and-stick approach. The cash being the carrot, and the stick being… well, their stick. When I say I don’t provide those services, they don’t back down.

They raise their offer.

Bill’s eyes travel over me as he continues fingering his bulge. The wallet, of course. It’s not the only thing bulging in his pants, but at least he knows which of the two I’m interested in, period.

The lines in his shoulders relax as he gives up for the night and leans back against the couch. His doughy cheeks pull back into a smile.

“Shame,” he drawls pointedly, hinting at how much I’m missing out.

Considering that chipmunk sized tent he’s pitching, I’m pretty confident I’m not missing out on much.

But I hood my eyes seductively and pout a little bit. “You can always stick around for a little longer. You know how much I love spending time with you.”

Ten months ago, I would’ve never imagined I could make a man empty his wallet just by changing where and how I look at him.

I still remember my first day at Starlette when Sage, the strip club’s house mom, pulled me back from making my awkward rounds waddling around the floor. It was my first wearing six-inch fuck-me heels when I’ve only ever worn two-inch-high Mary Janes for church.

She pursed her lips and said, “Honey, if these men wanted to look at a woman who looks as miserable as you do out there, they’d go home to their wives.”

She made a science out of flirtation and laughed when I whipped out my trusty pen and paper. Gave me a big “mhm, you do that” when I said I’d go research all about ‘the art of seduction.’

Even now, Sage likes to joke that her greatest accomplishment to date is turning “Sunday School Skye” turn into “Devilishly Dazzling Destiny.”

Flashing a toothy, hopeful smile, Bill changes tactic. “Then how about dinner? Tomorrow night?”

I’m obviously not going to get him to stay another hour tonight. Lowering my voice huskily, I brush back his hair with the lightest of touches. “Dating is against the rules. But you’ll be the first to know if that ever changes.”

My own rules. Nothing against the other dancers who do date their customers. Believe me, I heard some of the cute love stories shared in the back, and even I’ve dreamed about a sexy, respectful millionaire who can’t resist me after a crotch grind, a motorboat, or an hour of very fulfilling conversation in the half-nude who wants to get to know the real me. And then I remember my clientele includes… well… Bill and his ilk.

No offense. Bill behaves (most of the time), and some of my regulars are nice. But even if I were interested in any of them (which, spoiler alert, I’m not), my stomach doesn’t get all fluttery with butterflies when they’re talking about their wives and kids. A club isn’t exactly ideal breeding grounds for a relationship… or breeding.

That doesn’t mean I don’t pretend I want them. I do. I pretend hard.

Winking at Bill, I peel myself off the couch and straighten as I turn around, looking at him cutely over my shoulder. “Besides, I wouldn’t be able to handle a heartbreaker like you.”

He chuckles low in the back of his throat. “Baby, I’d never break your heart.”

I feel a little bitter on behalf of his wife. She’s probably sitting home right now on a Wednesday night, helping their six-year-old son with his alphabets or maths or coloring homework, while he’s here, dishing out his paycheck for a few boob shimmies and butt rolls.

But I shouldn’t complain. After all, Bill is a platinum donor to the Skylar Kay Survival Foundation.

“You break my heart every time you leave.” I wink before walking away, swaying my hips and letting my ass shake.

A couple of wandering eyes flit over to me as I sashay through the room. This is about as private as it gets for those who don’t have enough dough to cough up for some actual one-on-one time in one of the Champagne Rooms.

Nothing sketchy happens back there, of course. At least, it’s not supposed to. But it’s not unusual for a dancer to take off her bikini top for the several extra hundreds she’s getting for the same hour-long session.

I’ve never, and I won’t ever. Not because I think I’m better than any of the other women (God knows I’m in just as much of a shithole, if not in a worse one, as some of them). But I’m just not that comfortable with exposing my nips to strangers who don’t even know my real name. Only my ex-boyfriend has ever seen my bare nipples, and that’s not going to change for any amount of money.

I envy the girls who dance here because they love flaunting their gorgeous bodies and basking in the spotlight. But I’m not one of them.

I love dancing — heck, I wanted to be a professional dancer — but I’d rather dance with clothes on and not on a stage with a pole on it. I’m a statistical cliche working here out of desperation.

“You can always come home with me,” Bill says optimistically, trying one last time as we head toward the exit. “You know I’ll take real good care of you.”

It does make me wonder whether men’s bedroom skills improve if they pay for sex. Do they try to make the most of their money? Or is it an easy done deal since the sex is an expectation?

I’d assume the latter.

Is it terrible that I assume they’re mediocre at sex? Maybe even bad at it? Horrible? The lose-faith-in-mankind’s-manhood kind of sex?

Either way, I wouldn’t know. I’ve only been around one and a half naked guys. The second one was a Tinder date that finished with a handjob that lasted twenty seconds. We took a longer time taking our pants off. Not our clothes. Just our pants. Like I said, he didn’t even see my nipples.

Tinder Dude definitely made me lose faith in Tinder, and I haven’t even tried hooking up with anyone since. Why bother if I’m just a heated, fleshy replacement for some Kleenex?

At the door, the bouncer stands menacingly with his thick, meaty arms crossed, glaring at the pasty, Pillsbury Doughboy-esque businessman.

Bill knows the drill. He pulls his wallet out so fast, I would’ve missed it if I blinked.

I brush my fingers along his elbow as I press my boobs against his arm, drawing his attention to my cleavage.

“Come see me again, Bill,” I coo. “You know I’m here from Wednesday to Saturday, eight to four.”

Maybe I should become a camgirl instead. I got the script down pat.

Bill doesn’t bother hiding his disappointment when I pull away, but the tease is what keeps him coming back every week.

“Destiny,” he murmurs, his eyes still glued to my tits. He raises them to wink at me. “You’ll warm up to me one day.”

Internally, I cringe. I really, really doubt it.

But winking with a perfectly practiced, sugary sweet smile, I croon, “See you next week, Bill.”

#IAE19 #AuthorSpotlight – Hope Daniels

Image may contain: text
Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hope Daniels, I’m half of the writing team to the Magical Forces Series books.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

My favorite place to write is actually outside. Unfortunately, the sun makes it difficult to stay out there long and write. So, my second favorite place to write is in my bedroom with my feet up and music playing.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting the readers and introducing them to my books. My characters take on a life of their own and I tend to get animated when I talk about them. 🙂
I love the interaction between authors and getting to meet the authors that I read and review. The energy is undeniable. If you weren’t pumped before you arrived, you will be before you leave.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Nora Roberts, Larissa Ione, Lorelei James (Sorry, I couldn’t pick just one)

What author would you love to write with?

Dianna Love, Larissa Ione

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Holding my first paperback in my hands is one. The one which made me tear up is when we were at an event and a fan came to our table and said they read our book and loved it. Now they needed it in paperback.
